It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marshall William Duliba on Thursday, December 24th, 2015. He will be remembered by his wife Olga, sons Daryn (Teena), Kevin (Erin), three grandchildren – Emma, Evan, and Emberly, brothers Edward (Lorraine) and Ernest (Joan), sisters Josey and Annie , niece Sandie (Les, Sabrina, Kylie), extended family in Edmonton, Alberta, and numerous friends whose lives he touched in Kamloops.
Marshall was born in Vegreville, Alberta, on January 16, 1938, and lived in Edmonton before moving to Kamloops with his family in 1973. For many years Marshall worked in sales for both Mac Tools and Metalon Industrial Products throughout the Kamloops region. He was an avid participant, supporter and spectator of his sons’ athletic pursuits in the community including hockey, soccer, and softball. Marshall was renowned for his willingness and ability to diagnose and repair small engines and automobiles — a pastime he approached with great enthusiasm and pride.
Marshall will always be remembered by those around him as a man of honesty, and integrity who put the wishes of others before his own. For that, he will be greatly missed but fondly remembered by those with whom he interacted.
We will greatly miss our husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend, who will always remain in our hearts and memories.
Those we love don’t go away
They walk beside us every day
Unseen, unheard, but always near
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.
An informal remembrance gathering for friends and family will be held on Saturday, January 2nd, at 1 – 3:30, downstairs in the commons area at the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kamloops, located at 1044 8th Street. Everyone whose life Marshall touched is welcomed to attend.
A formal service will be conducted in Edmonton, Alberta at a date and time to be announced in the New Year.Print This Obituary & Condolences
